"Barry Allen - the Flash. His birth kick-started the Silver Age, and his heroic death defending the universe from a cosmic Crisis made him a legend. Now another Crisis has brought Barry back to life, and the Fastest Man Alive is out of step with the world. With the Flash legacy well preserved, Barry has no purpose except to try to solve the one mystery that eluded him during his previous life - the murder of his mother."--P.  of cover.
